How to Maintain Industrial Power Equipment

Maintenance of various power equipment is a key part of facility management. The entire operation depends on the power systems such as backup generators, control panels, industrial chargers, UPS, etc. The failure of these key assets can put a production plant in jeopardy. This is why maintenance is of paramount significance so far as the facility management is concerned.

Managing critical equipment demands an auditable process to reduce operational risks. It also has an impact on safety, cost, compliance, and operational throughput. With the growing focus on environmental responsibility and sustainability, it is required to implement risk mitigation strategies.

Businesses have to devise cost-effective strategies in order to survive in a competitive environment and become low-cost producers. Possible situations or risks that can pose a threat to business operations must be anticipated and addresses in a timely manner. It is advisable to prioritize the existing assets for inspection and maintenance. The data obtained from reviews and inspection programs can be used to meet risk mitigation objectives.

What are the techniques to maintain critical power equipment in a facility? We understand the significance of emergency generators in a production process. Backup generators can keep a production process running for years. However, they require regular maintenance. Load bank testing is one of the techniques to maintain a generator.

Load testing a standby generator system must be an inseparable part of the standard planned maintenance program. The process ensures that your standby generators keep producing the designed output.

Battery maintenance is also a critical component of running an efficient and reliable facility. However, the procedure to maintain industrial batteries is slightly technical. Carrying out maintenance activities in the right order can save time and extend the lifespan of batteries and chargers. Besides, make sure you clean batteries in the designated areas using proper tools.

It is recommended to hire a professional preventive maintenance service which can take care of your equipment critical to production and operational activities. An expert in this field will help you establish the appropriate procedures for generator and battery maintenance without affecting the safe working environment. Having a preventive maintenance program in place is a good way to keep your power equipment in good working condition.

Conclusively speaking, regular maintenance activities such as load bank testing, commissioning, inspection, etc. can extend the useful life of your generators and other systems. Reach a reputable contractor that can take good care of your generators and other equipment.

Introducing the QuiQ 1500 Industrial Battery Charger

A light bulb went on for one of Delta-Q’s engineers and the QuiQ 1500 Battery Charger was born. Nicholas Dohmeier and Lloyd Gomm tell the story of the innovation behind creating a new battery charger for specialty golf and utility vehicles, and boom lifts. With the same mechanical design as the popular QuiQ 1000, the new 1500 can charge a battery pack up to 30% faster.

Video Transcript

This is the QuiQ industrial battery charger.
We are really excited about the latest QuiQ Series Battery Charger we are launching, it’s the QuiQ 1500. It’s a higher power variant of the popular QuiQ Series of battery chargers.

Our customers have needs for faster charging. Typically, with a faster charging charger, it takes up more space. In our case, the mechanical foot print is identical and customers can match the same product, in the same size package, with larger battery packs. It is a huge flexibility benefit for our customer base.

So the QuiQ 1500 is a product variant of the QuiQ line and we have chosen to provide the higher power, in specifically 48 and 72 volt applications. This means that the QuiQ 1500 is primarily targeted towards specialty golf vehicles, utility vehicles, boom lifts, and after market opportunities as well.

The QuiQ 1500 was born out of our culture of continuous improvement. With the QuiQ Series, the engineering team was looking for ways to both improve reliability and also improve efficiency. The engineering team led by Nicholas, basically came up with an idea to get more power out of the same product.

Every charger that is returned to Delta-Q gets analyzed, and we very carefully document all of the different issues that are noticed in the returned chargers. Then the engineers will analyze the mechanisms, try to see if there is a design improvement that can be made to address the various issues that get found in the returned chargers. These were all collected up for many years and then implemented in one project; the QuiQ refresh project, which allowed us to then completely re-validate the product.

And so we redesigned it to take advantage of state-of-the-art components that kind of future proofed the design. Consequently, this resulted in quite a substantial increase in the efficiency of the product. Approximately a two percent efficiency improvement. It really enabled us to push the full 1500 watts out of the charger.

In North America, which is a 120 volt service, a 1500 watt product will deliver 1200 watts of continuous power. In European applications with a voltage of 230 volts or in Asia, or with split phase, or higher voltages in North America as well, you can deliver 1500 watts continuously.

So I say kudos to the engineering team for bringing the spirit of innovation into this company. This is really what this company is about.

I’m really excited to see that the QuiQ is getting a breadth of innovation into it and customers are able to take it into a variety of different new applications.

The QuiQ is an iconic product for Delta-Q. It’s here to stay. We continue to invest in it and improve the performance, quality, and usability for all of our customers.

100 Years of Battery Charging Manufacturing

This year we celebrate our 100th year of manufacturing battery chargers for the material handling industry. Originally manufactured by Hobart Brothers Battery Charger Division, our industrial battery chargers have set the industry standard worldwide since 1917. Our first charger, the HB Battery Charger, was not built by machine, but primarily by skilled laborers, who witnessed firsthand the very beginning of the technology. When compared with today’s advanced technology chargers, it is impressive to consider all of the developments the industry has seen since 1917.

When the industry began one hundred years ago, battery chargers basically consisted of a motor that generated an electrical charge. They were all mechanical and very inefficient at charging batteries. American manufacturing was at its height of importance. Companies often employed the entire population of some small towns. While times have changed and assembly lines have been updated with the latest technology, the early adapters of battery charging technology developed the core methods that are still used today. As times have changed and industry has evolved, Prestolite Power has continued to push the limits of what its chargers can accomplish. Improved data collection, application of precise controls and high efficiency now serve as the cornerstones for battery charger technology across the industry.
